This natural preserve is located in The Village of Creekside Park and I personally love it because it is so near to the homes and is a great place to exercise, relax and enjoy nature.

Review: “I was pleasantly surprised by this place- it’s a little bit of an escape in the middle of the chaos that is Houston. There’s a nice dirt road that we walked our dogs along for a while until we came to the river, which has a large sandy beach for the dogs to play on. Someone was jogging while we were there and I imagine it’s a great place to go jogging- lots of shade with the trees and no traffic to deal with.” -Cassie
